Bay Breeze Yacht Charters is expanding its fleet, adding the Gemini 34 catamaran to its list of available boats. The Traverse City, MI-based company is responding to the rising popularity of catamarans in charter by making them available to guests in the Great Lakes region. Beginning this summer, Bay Breeze will be the only sailing outfit to offer Geminis for both sale and charter.

Bay Breeze owner Dave Conrad says he is excited to bring Gemini to Great Lakes sailors. “People love cats because they sail level and stable and have outstanding accommodations,” Conrad says. “Geminis are unique because they are one of the few cruising catamarans that can fit in a standard boat slip and can be trucked over land for delivery.” 

As the world’s best-selling single-design catamaran, Bay Breeze hopes the Gemini 34 will be a popular commodity. The first 2012 Gemini105Mc Catamaran will arrive in May.

We chartered with Bay Breeze last summer and were pleasantly surprised at the breadth of scenery and activity in Grand Traverse Bay. Check out Adam Cort’s video and story here.
